A Brief Note on Canadian Immigration Report Being Barred from Ottawa

CIReport, September 26, 2012

Earlier today, the webmasters of cireport.ca were scheduled to appear before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration. Due to apparent interference by Liberal and NDP members of the Committee, our scheduled presentation did not happen. You may read what we intended to say by clicking here.

We had been invited to present a 10 minute opening statement and answer questions posed by the Committee members. We made the long drive to Parliament Hill and just a moment after entering the meeting room, a clerk informed us that our time had been given to someone else and that we were not to appear before the committee.

After leaving the room, journalists who were already apprised of the situation informed us that the topic of our presentation was deemed inappropriate and had several screen captures of our website on hand. Still quite shaken by the news of being censored so hastily, we spoke with them for some time and attempted to convey the profound disappointment and confusion regarding this decision to censor us.

The meeting had been planned and rescheduled six times since June 2012. We were very much looking forward to presenting our opinions to the Committee and receiving their questions. It was an honour to be involved in such an admirable democratic process, and a privilege to be among the few private citizens whom were to be permitted to convey their thoughts regarding immigration.

However, it seems that the Liberals and NDP did not believe in their immigration policies enough to defend them before us. Along with all the other Canadians we speak for, we were silenced, censored, discarded.

It is easy to take a cynical stance and state that this committee apparently exists solely to pat itself on the back, but we believe the truth is far more pernicious. It appears that immigration is the only public policy that does not get talked about.

Canada proclaims itself a liberal country.

Since when, we wonder, is it a liberal value to silence your opposition?

The individuals involved with the decision of barring us should be greatly ashamed.

    Canadian parliament behaves shamefully,

    which means, these days, that they are acting very Whitely.

    “journalists who were already apprised of the situation informed us that the topic of our presentation was deemed inappropriate”

    There it is again, it’s ‘inappropriate’ to speak out, to point out, or be critical in any way of our own destruction.

  •  I never expected that from my mother country…sad.

    But then, the fish does not see the water.

  •  She’s getting her revenge for the following: an Indian (dot) PM met our PM and she asked that we (Canadian) admit more Indian to Canada to “relieve” the population pressure of India.
    Our PM answered that: Now you have an Indian population problem. If I let you import Indian here, both you and us will have an Indian population problem.

    I can’t remember his name.

    Disgusting!!!  These people come over here, and then have the audacity to demand that anyone who commits heresy against the state religion of multiculturalism be silenced.  They’re simply horrified about actually having to debate about whether our suicidal immigration policies are benifical to Canada.  The only people that currently benifit are the traitorous left-wing politicans that import their voting base, and the corporate money magnets that want cheap labour and inflated real-estate prices.

  • Are we allowed to point out this is White Genocide, or will our posts be censored?

    You shouldn’t complain about the censorship of important issues, when you yourself censor.

    • 1. Yes, we are. But if we’re doing this to bird dog for The Mantra, the no. Not because we don’t agree with The Mantra, because we do. But AR isn’t the place to repeat continuously mantras of any sort.

      2. We don’t censor. We maintain civility.
